The music video used to frighten the hell out of me. I thought the man in the bed was some kind of monster or beast like figure. Turns out it’s a war veteran/victim who just wants his pain and suffering to end. Another example of an extremely well crafted Metallica song. Let’s learn to play the into to One.

What Are We Learning To Play?

Below is a video of what you will be able to play by the end of this post. 

Ukulele Tabs

I would highly advise getting hold a low G ukulele to play this as effectively as possible. Barre the 2nd fret across all the strings and place your ring finger on the 4th of the G for the first section of fingerpicking. Drop your barring finger down a string so it reveals the open G. Follow this method throughout the entire riff.
